Bento # 657

About a week ago I'd purchased a "striped beet" in a store - and more or less forgot about it. But last night I decided to cut it up and see if it was really striped. It looked more or less like a small turnip so I wasn't sure how it would look inside... But once it was sliced up, the prettiest sight emerged! I'm in love with striped beets!

Husband's Lunch

Wow, it feels like forever since I posted a bento! My husband gets free lunch at work, and I'm unemployed currently so I haven't been packing lunches lately. But this week, his company is doing a "donate your lunch to charity" thing for Thanksgiving, so he has to bring his own food. :-) So without further ado, Monday's lunch:

He has:
Chicken salad with cherry tomatoes on a bed of baby spinach
Two onigiri with toasted sesame seeds
4 Navel orange segments
Dark chocolate M&Ms for dessert
Not shown: Banana, Green tea packet

  • Current Music
  • haver

1-2 lunches (that adore you now, that's what I said oh)



In the bottom salmony rice with black pepper and black sesame seeds
In the top portion: Orange teriyaki chicken with pomegranate seeds and celery

Side note: This is the donburi bowl bento off
and it is fantastic!
and as a shout out to them I know they are expensive but last order I got from them they made a mistake and sent me the wrong item so I got to keep their error for free (!!!) and they sent me a replacement of the original item I had ordered in less than a week. Awesome.


This is just lock and lock with chicken, snow peas and mini sweet bell peppers stuffed with rice, tomato sauce and some cheddar cheese.

Still enjoying myself with the striped beets. And now with a yello beet thrown in the mix! It's almost equally awesome, a lovely deep yellow. Unfortunately, the stripey beets lose their colour when they're boiled. Once I get some more I'll try baking them in the oven and see if they retain their colour then. But in any case it's still a very cool veggie!
